Writing for Children's Magazines

Magazine Markets for Young Writers


The magazines listed on this page accept submissions from young writers or illustrators. Additional magazines on the regular list may also accept submissions from young writers, but the publications here specifically say they want them.

A few are not technically magazines but are places where your work can be published.

The age range listed after the title is the targeted audience. The age range listed after the submission guidelines indicates the ages eligible for submitting. If no age is listed, they are open to both kids and adults.

[I] means the publication is only on the internet, not a print magazine. Sometimes a publisher does both.

$x means the publication is a non-paying market. $ means it pays. The absence of a symbol means I don't know.

If you know of corrections or additions to the list, please email me.

Please note: All of these publications are listed here in good faith, but I can make no guarantees about any of these publishers or the information found on any of these sites.
